VIRGINIA BEACH–The 2013 AAA Senior Driver Expo will be held in Virginia Beach to help area seniors and their children deal with the challenges facing senior drivers.
It's October 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Simon Family Jewish Community Center, 5000 Corporate Woods Drive in Virginia Beach and it's free and open to the public.
At the expo, you can get help assessing and improving driving skills, reducing driving risks and fostering dialogue between parents and children about driving issues. In addition, information on community resources to support senior drivers in the Hampton Roads Area will be available.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide seniors in Hampton Roads with information they can use to continue to drive as safe as possible for as long as possible,” said Georjeane Blumling, vice president of public affairs for AAA Tidewater.
“This is a topic that will affect each of us at some point in our driving lives. Giving senior drivers and their adult children tools to help meet the challenge of making the transition from driver to full time passenger is a key element in the process.”
The expo is sponsored by AAA Tidewater Virginia and Virginia DMV/HSO, Hampton Roads Transit, Hertz, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, Va. Beach Crime Prevention Unit, TRIAD, Virginia GrandDriver, Luxottica, Rite Aide, Ride-Away, Pagal’s Driving School, Yellow Cab and others.
There also will be a Senior Driver Expo in Newport News on Thursday, November 10, from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the United Jewish Community Center, 2700 Spring Road.
